Summer is lemonade and watermelon slices,

black earth and newly mown grass,

Smooth and silky, soft and warm.

Fall is hot cider and apples,

cinnamon, leaves and straw.

Crisp and crunchy, bright and clear.


I love summer for its daylight, heat and its lack of snow  ;).  But fall really is my favorite time of year. I’m not sure why, but the fall has signalled many of my life changes, so its a time of new beginnings for me. I am more hopeful in fall than spring. I am also less depressed, so maybe that is a large part of it. But for whatever reason, fall is when I am energized.  Maybe its all the extra tea…

What’s your favorite time of year?
